‘His exhilarating, sometimes burlesque narrative introduces several fascinating characters…Ethiopia provides the questing spirit, as does this thrilling and intelligent book.’ Daily Telegraph
‘He rises above the physical trail to produce short intense vignettes that transport us to a world that few of us will ever see…As both Traveller and Scribe, the best travel writers, like Marsden, hammer out a chain between two worlds: the foreign and the familiar, the present and historical, the journey physical and interior, the road hard travelled and the story well told.’ Sunday Times

There has been little written about Ethiopia and it is still tarred with images from news footage of famines. Marsden offers us a new reflection on a truly unique place, unique in culture, customs and in it's general isolation from the West and the rest. If you intend on learning more about this quirky corner of Africa I recommend reading both "The Emperor" and "The Pale Abyssinian".
